I went with friends for dinner. The staff were welcoming and helpful, live music not too loud. There was a great variety of fish on offer. We had perch (smudj in Serbian) with potato and Swiss chard and loved it. Desserts were nice too. All in all a very pleasant evening by the Danube.

Saran is a long established restuarant located on the banks of the Danube specailising in fish. Its high reputation is well deserved. It was a little too early in the year to dine outside to enjoy the view but we were very happy to sit inside the restaurant. Our perch pike could not have been bettered. We shared a fine... More

Most of the restaurants in Belgrade are meat, so a good seafood restaurant is hard to find. The restaurant is a bit out of the city, a taxi or bus ride, but well worth the trip. We visited early on a Friday off season so managed to get a table, but I suspect it gets very busy so booking is... More

Excellent, river-front restaurant with delicious Mediterranean fare, fresh Adriatic sea fish and seafood, perfectly grilled or cooked and served on small terrasse by Danube. Shrimps and octopus are very nicely prepared, grilled with a hint if garlic for the former, carpaccio style for the latter, all to be tasted with a glass of regional wine

Lots of character and seating options in this place. Great dining atmosphere and experience. The night I was there, they had traditional musicians walking through and playing requests. If you are looking to eat seafood in Belgrade then you should consider this restaurant.

Another recommendation of our superb guide, Maja, Restoran Saran, on the Zemun waterfront was truly the crowning glory of the varied culinary choices we had made in Belgrade. With its wonderful ambiance, delightful furnishings and excellent sdrvice it must surely rate as one of the capital's premier eateries... We feasted on superbly prepared giant trout, grilled to perfection with savory... More

This restaurant is my favorite place when I'm in Belgrade. Adorned by wooden interior plants and flowers and beautiful terrace just near the river. Excellent and professional service and exquisite menu. Every meal was fresh and tasty. Excellent selection of wine also. Recommending it bot for family and friends gatherings or business meetings. Really special place.

Thank Katarina_Kitevski
